In these times of staying home and staying safe, I have found planning ahead is the best way for me to overcome the extreme boredom.
I am fortunate in a couple ways, to be able to do it. First of all, Liz has worked from home for quite a while now and we have learned to coexist quite well without killing each other. Secondly, I have been living full time as a transgender woman for so long with an accepting partner. So I don’t need the reinforcement of being validated in public as a feminine person. I have long since made the gender jump back to the person I always should have been.
I am also using the extra time I have staying in to write on my second book again. Looking back on my life and how I transitioned back to my true self has helped me to better understand how far I have come and be better prepared to hopefully ride out the current corona virus outbreak which the experts now say may not peak here in Ohio for another month. Of course too, as all of this health drama is unfolding, spring has established a firm hold finally here too. Which means it is time to update my wardrobe.
Luckily, now more than ever before, it is easier to update your wardrobe from home. In fact, if you do have a few more dollars to spend, you can enroll in a paid course through Total Image Consultants. If you are like me and don’t, most on line clothing sites now have a liberal return policy until you learn what fits you well and flatters you. Along the way you have to learn how to dress as your ideal woman and get the most out of your assets. It’s a difficult path with many more errors than trials but one which is worth it in the end.
Ideally, as you wait for society to return to it’s new normal, you can take the time to improve yourself.
It’s been tough for me as I am more of a reactive rather than a proactive person. In the mean time, I am doing my best to plan ahead.
